Description: Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee...
Matlock Meadows is a modern purpose built ice cream parlour and coffee shop set within a working dairy farm. The farm has diversified by making italian style hand made ice cream here on the farm using the fresh milk from our dairy herd. The coffee shop serves 15 flavours of ice cream, also sorbet's, ice cream sundaes, a range of hot and cold drinks and snacks, giftware and local produce. In the adjacent field and barn we have micro pigs, rabbits, sheep, chickens, cows and calves. We are a real working dairy farm rather than a major visitor attraction therefore we do not charge any entrance fees however we rely on the income generated from the shop sales and would politely like to point out that Car parking, use of facilities/toilets and access to the animals is free of charge for patrons of the coffee shop only. The farm has disabled access and facilites and can accommodate educational group/school visits also childrens birthday parties.

By its own admission, Matlock Meadows isn't meant to be a major visitor attraction. However, it has a small children's play area outside and pedal tractors in the barn (to be paid for in the café) and the café and shop which is the main attraction. There was a very good selection of ice cream flavours, a cake counter and... More

Had lunch here and ice cream also! I had a sausage bap witch was huge with no less than 4 sausages in it and at £2.50 was outstanding value. The wife had a panini also very nice. Followed by some of the best ice cream I have ever had. And I like ice cream.

We spent a couple of hours at Matlock meadows, there was a great play area for children, lots of animals for everyone to look around. But the main attraction was the wonderful ice cream displayed in a unique rotating ice cream freezer. Lots of lovely flavours to choose from and a good choices of sizes and options of how to...

This was my first visit to the meadows. It was a brilliant afternoon - The ice cream is delicious and there is so much for my toddler to do. She learnt about all the animals and got to play on ride on tractors. We even bought some of the meat they were selling from inside the cafe. It's lovely to... More

Matlock Meadows is a really nice place to take your little ones. You can easily spend an hour or two looking at the animals, playing on the outdoor play area (which has a couple of new pieces of equipment since we visited last summer), having a ride on the tiny play tractors and of course sampling the fabulous ice cream...

I love this place. You can take your little ones around the farm to look at the animals and play on the play area all for free. There is a pretend cow that children can milk too. The homemade food is out of this world especially the various flavours of ice cream! I find the food rather expensive, but it... More

For an hour this was a great place, free entry, a few sheep , chickens, rabbits, cows and pig to view. Then a small cafe to spend some time plus a small swing and slide. Our little one loved it. For free you cannot ask for more!

This is a great idea! There's not too much to do but there are animals to see and play areas for the children and it's worth it for the ice cream alone! You can taste that it's freshly made and all natural too, there was a good choice of flavours and it's definitely worth the price. You must go try... More

Whenever we visit Matlock we fit in a trip to Matlock Meadows. It is nice to see it improve and offer more facilities each time. The ice cream was lovely, as was the orange sorbet. Also had a Mars cake which was tasty and reasonably priced. My eldest had a great time playing on the pedal tractors and on the... More
